Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri’s latest venture Banjo is all set for its theatrical release tomorrow and by the look at every single piece of information we have gathered on the movie, this is one movie you should definitely miss. Quite literally. The Eros International venture is directed by Ravi Jadhav ( This is his first Hindi movie and first mistake in Bollywood) and produced by Krishika Lulla. Principal Photography for the movie began in January 2016 and the movie is slated for a worldwide ( Another mistake) release on September 23.

Banjo (2016) Plot

Nachegi Duniya, Bajane Wala Chahiye. And that ‘Bajane’ wala is Riteish Deshmukh.

Banjo, the movie has turned out so unimportant that the movie’s Wikipedia Page before the release is practically empty with no information whatsoever from one of the most reliable information sites on the internet. Nevertheless, Banjo stars Riteish Deshmukh is foul-mouthed alcoholic who has no objection in being covered with human excreta. He is far from a lead character as one can get and to add, he also reportedly plays the Banjo and Nargis Fakhri plays the role of DJ in the movie. Riteish’s name in the movie, Taraat, adds to the completely rural appeal of the character who seems to take pride in the task of beating people up. With atrocious dialogues and some really plain fighting scenes, the movie is far from the Musical-dram it is enlisted as.

Banjo 2016 Negative Points

Banjo is probably the most unnecessary Bollywood project in recent months of the Indian film industry and the biggest negative points of the movie are Riteish, Nargis and Abhishek Bachchan. Yes, Junior B has taken a page out of his father’s book and provided the background voiceover for the trailer of this predicted box-office dud and quite surprisingly, however bad his limited role (or voice) is in the movie (or the trailer), it beats his acting in all the three Dhoom movies by miles. The movie defies logic and basic common sense. The 40-second screen presence of Nargis Fakhri in the Banjo trailer shows her donning quite a few number of Maharashtrian outfits and she looks nothing like a disco Jockey. Furthermore, Riteish is seen playing the Banjo with a razor blade as a plectrum. So the ‘Musician’ has money to drink but not to buy a plectrum. Makes a lot of sense. His angry-young-man avatar doesn’t suit him at all considering his most successful roles were of a perverted married man in the Grand Masti trilogy.

Another highlight of the ‘Musical Drama’ movie? The soundtrack. We cannot remember the last time a ‘musical’ had such a line-up of songs titled so beautifully. Have a look

Banjo 2016 Postive Points:

Even the most optimistic person on earth will miserably fail to find something good to say about the upcoming movie, which will unfortunately, occupy quite a number of theatre slots from tomorrow.

Banjo 2016 Rating:

Critics Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars

Audience Response: 1 out of 5 stars

Direction: 1.5 out of 5 stars

Music Score: 2 out of 5 stars

Acting: 1 out of 5 stars

We rate this soon-to-be-released Riteish-Nargis starrer an overall average of 1 star out of a maximum of 5 owing to the very fact that we cannot rate it any lower. We advise every single person not to go for the movie as it will diminish any new-found respect Bollywood has garnered with latest releases like Pink. If you get the tickets for free and have a lot of time to kill, you can go give it a try but even that is unadvisable.

If you don’t believe a word of any of this, have a look at the trailer below. Good Luck.
